Best band ever? The Beatles


05-06-2007 18:12:45

Nobody has had the same kind of impact on music, the advancement of music, recording techniques, the media, social issues (at least in the U.K.) and such a broad spectrum of people that The Beatles have.

Even Chopin and Brahms were influenced by The Beatles', The Beatles (White Album) album and consider it their favourite.


05-06-2007 18:17:50

Yah ill give my respects to the beatles

Death From Above 1979

Great Band


05-06-2007 18:18:34

Yeah, but weren't they influenced by people, too ... like Bob Dylan?

I'd still agree that the Beatles were influential, but don't forget they had influences, too )

i believe it or not have always been a lil partial to stevie stevens ( billy idols guitar player).. as far as bands.. i have a FEW.. top ones that pop into mind now are danzig.. NIN.. RHCP... audioslave/soundgarden (chris cornell is a VERY good singer).. danzig probably tops my list of awesome singers.. very powerful voice.. oh yeah.. another guitar player who more than likely kicks the shit outta stevie stevens is whoever the guys name is who plays for audioslave now (AKA rage against the machine).. that guy makes some GREAT noises come outta that GEE-tar.. i tend to be eclectic in my music.. basically whatever feels right to me.. as it should for EVERYBODY.. not just cuz MTV or whatever radio station is shovin down yer throat at the time

Not sure about bands, but who I think the best guitarists are as follows

Jimi Hendrix
Stevie Ray Vaughn
Johnny Lang (before he went Gospel) - Saw him live and nearly cried...amazing guitarist
B.B. King

I'm all about the blues guitar and classic rock.

[quotee3ae0ac5ee="tinkerjenn"]Queen - Brian May.[/quotee3ae0ac5ee]

Queen is my favorite band without a doubt, but The Beatles are definitely the best band ever, for all the reasons that TSJ said and just the fact that their music is timeless.

Although Brian May is an amazing guitarist, I wouldn't call him the best. The fact that he plays Red Special and uses a sixpence coin as a pick makes him utterly badass, but it's hard to say who the best "guitarist" is. There are bests in certain categories, and every good guitarist should be considered good for having his own style, such as Eric Clapton for basically placing his soul into the guitar everytime he plays it, Buckethead for his insane shredding, Yngwie Malmsteen for technical style and innovation, Brian May for being able to make anything sound amazing on a guitar, Peter Frampton and his talkbox, Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath for pretty much inventing metal guitar, Slash of GnR for his speed and accuracy, Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin for being a flat out guitar god, Hendrix for the amount of feeling he puts into every note, Synyster Gates of Avenged Sevenfold for having amazing speed, and many more like Dimebag Darrell, Randy Rhoads, John Petrucci , Stevie Ray Vaughn, Joe Satriani, Eddie Van Halen, Keith Richards, George Harrison, Steve Vai, David Gilmour, etc.

I love rock n' roll. D

Claypool is definitely the best and weirdest bassist out there. That slap style is so badass.

06-06-2007 18:23:45

I can not believe that only one person thinks Eddie Van Halen is one of the best. I have got to say Eddie, Jimmie Hendrix and Van Halen.

14-06-2007 20:52:33

Best Band RHCP
Best Guitarist I know im gonna get ripped for this....... John Mayer well not ever, but he's one of my favorites

John Frusciante of RHCP... Flea is def one of the dankest bass players ever.
Hendrix is probably the dankest guitar player ever.


14-06-2007 23:04:22

Perhaps if John Mayer could come up with his own music instead of half the album coming from somebody else.

Anyway, Hendrix and Clapton are my favorites. I would say Eddie but his voice annoys the shit out of me.
